    The autopsy should include examination of the carotid bodies for dopamine saturation. Such 'marker' evidence would indicate SIDS as being the cause of death. However, it's absence would not imply otherwise. Ref: SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME: INCREASED CAROTID-BODY DOPAMINE AND NORADRENALINE CONTENT The Lancet, Volume 324, Issue 8402, Pages 535-537 Abstract : Carotid bodies from infants dying of sudden infant death syndrome contained significantly higher concentrations of dopamine (10-fold) and noradrenaline (3-fold) than those from age-matched control infants. Administration of dopamine inhibits respiration by direct action on the carotid body, and it is suggested that the elevated levels of endogenous catecholamines found in victims of sudden infant death syndrome may compromise the normal function of the carotid body, particularly the ventilatory response to hypoxia.
